Kick-Off Party for Good Skipper Celebration
Chairmen of the “Good Skipper Celebration”, Ellen and Fred Prelle, hosted a Kick-Off Party at their home for the Host Committee. Fred Prelle, President of Advisors Financial Group, has been a Boys & Girls Harbor Board Member since 2010.
This year’s Good Skippers, Grant Harvey, Jacqueline Smith, and Fred Wahrlich spoke about the mission of the Harbor to the guests of Ellen and Fred Prelle. The evening was very successful in making new friends to the Harbor and selling 24 tables for the October 13th “Good Skipper Celebration” at Sylvan Beach Pavilion in La Porte.
Dick Vermeil, who coached the St. Louis Rams to victory over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV, will be the featured speaker at the event.
Vermeil also took the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl in 1980, and wrapped up his career with the Kansas City Chiefs. Vermeil owns the distinction of being named coach of the year at four levels: high school, junior college, NCAA FBS and the National Football League. Retired from coaching and from his role as a television analyst, today Vermeil is a Napa Valley, California vintner.
Boys & Girls Harbor welcomes the community to help celebrate this year’s Good Skippers and enjoy hearing Dick Vermeil. Individual tickets for the dinner event are $175. Table sponsorships begin at $1,500 for a table of eight guests. For additional information contact, Patricia Lind, the Harbor’s Director of Major Gifts, at (713)-688-6262, ext. 300.
